• Lock the slide in the open position by allowing the slide to come forward slightly as you push up on the slide stop. (Figure 18)

• Place the barrel onto the frame/slide and push down into place as shown in Figure 19.

Following reassembly, and prior to attempting to load your pistol, always make certain that the pistol is in proper working order and that there are no unusual conditions to prevent its safe operation. Follow all of the inspection procedures outlined in the "Inspecting Your Pistol" section of this manual.
